We gave it a B

If you see just one craptacular summer movie about an earth ruled by fireball-breathing dragons, then rescued by a Patton-like warrior (Matthew McConaughey) and his British ally (Christian Bale), make it this one. In fact, the season could do with more unself-important, happy-to-be-rip-roaring throwback movies like this one: The throwaway good humor is as rare as dragon’s eggs.
